Outdoor Nurseries Social Enterprise Fund

Outdoor Nurseries Social Enterprise Fund

[THIS FUND HAS NOW CLOSED]

Thanks to a generous donation from a supporter who wishes to remain anonymous, we have established a new Fund to offer seed-corn investment to develop innovative approaches for the creation of a new generation of outdoor early learning and childcare (ELC) settings.

Funding will be available for 12 to 18 months to support the establishment of new outdoor ELC settings.

This Fund is intended to target areas of very high deprivation where there is a clear need for ELC provision.

Please note that only existing charities that are currently social enterprises or who plan to become social enterprises in the course of the funding year are eligible to apply.
